Jordan Spieth cracks face of Titleist driver, has replacement


There's not much worse time to have to make an equipment change than on the eve of a major championship, but that's what Jordan Spieth is facing on Wednesday night at Augusta National.

As part of his final preparation for his Masters title defense, the 22-year-old cracked the face of his long-time Titleist 915D2 driver. Spieth was seen on Golf Channel on the range ahead of a press dinner on Wednesday evening working with instructor Cameron McCormick, using a Trackman launch monitor to test several replacement heads.

Spieth ranks 62nd in driving distance on the PGA Tour, averaging 295 yards off the tee. He's 79th in driving accuracy, hitting the fairway at a 63.09 percent clip.

The Texan may well be on the range particularly early on Thursday morning to get more comfortable with the new driver. His Thursday tee time is at 9:48 a.m. Eastern.
